Expect big crops from this tireless worker
Days to Maturity: 75 from direct sow
We are delighted to offer Beet Boro Hybrid as certified organic seed. This fine variety is a very heavy producer, offering masses of spring or fall crops. Resistant to bolting and quite adept at storing over the long haul, it’s the beet of choice for busy gardeners.
These beets are best picked at their tender, succulent 3-inch diameter size, but if you have to delay the harvest or choose larger fruit, they have been known to reach up to 5 inches in diameter without woodiness or loss of freshness. This versatility is great when you’re busy at harvest time and just don’t have the time to can or pickle all your crops at once.
Boro is very uniform in size, with extremely dark red color and not a trace of zoning. It is a favorite for pickling, but it also works well as a fresh vegetable. You will love this nutritious, easy-to-grow root, as well as the flavorful tops, which make good eating all season long.
Beets are a cool-weather crop, direct sown in fall or as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Before planting, make sure that the soil is as loose, rich, and well-drained as possible, so that the root can grow without stress.
Pkt is 100 seeds, which sows 5 feet of row.
